The appointment is set slightly after the date aired by the latest rumors, namely the June 4th at 10pm. We will talk about “Future of gaming on PlayStation 5”.
The date was presented with a short video teaser on social media and an open “invitation” letter to fans signed by Jim Ryan, president of Sony Interactive Entertainment, on the new PlayStation Blog.
Ryan acknowledged that “The road to launch was a bit … different”, thus admitting that there have been difficulties and ups and downs due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has been plaguing the world for months.
The console presentation event will be offered “a first look at the games that you will play after PlayStation 5 is released in the Christmas holidays ».
“The games coming to PS5 represent the best in the industry from innovative studies from all over the globe. Studies, both large and small, both more recent and established for years », added Ryan, “They have all worked hard to develop games that will showcase the potential of the hardware.”
Sony adds that “This digital showcase will last for just over an hour» and it will be “Part of our series of updates on PS5 and, rest assured, after the event next week we will still have a lot to share with you”.
“The lack of physical events gave us an incredible opportunity to think differently and take you on this journey with us and hopefully closer than ever”, Ryan commented. “We hope to make you proud.”
A final passage that had become clear after the recent rumors that the Japanese house had discarded other presentations on earlier dates because they were considered unprofessional.
